Today I’d like to share with you the immediate availability of Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) for use with the Windows 7 Beta and more roadmap information around App-V 4.6.We’ve been listening to customers who want to see us support Windows 7 early so they can move ahead with their application testing in preparation for their enterprise deployments. Today, we are pleased to announce the immediate availability of App-V 4.5 CU1 for the Windows 7 Beta. As you know, we have a high bar for application compatibility between Windows Vista and Windows 7, so you might be wondering why we need an update of App-V specific to Windows 7.

So foray into virtualization continues with the product, this plays nicely into Microsoft’s  hands as it begins the mammoth task of promoting Windows 7.

What App-V does is give you the ability to create a virtualized version of an application and then test it within the Windows 7 environment.

Whilst most people would say   (previously known as Thinstall) and are more mature, App-V deserves and an opportunity, and that opportunity is best started in a lab or test environment.

In a sign of our times, a video version of Twitter that allows anyone to share moments of their lives in short, 12 second video clips is gaining traction among the geek crowd.

The site, 12seconds.tv, lends weight to the increasingly common view that we are the most narcissistic age ever. What’s more, the plethora of information available on the web has trained us to seek instant gratification, dipping in and out of sites within seconds if the content doesn’t immediately grab our attention.

My initial thoughts are “WTF” but after reading a little about it and taking a look at the website I think this will probably get some traction.

Initially like twitter it will attract the “geek” or IT market, but just like Twitter it will become mainstream.

They base the 12 seconds on scientific studies that show people lose interest after 12 seconds of viewing, I still think it depends on what your viewing.

Time will tell I guess
